Scottish Borders Council are looking to recruit a highly motivated, qualified Senior Social Worker to support the provision of good outcomes for children and young people in the Throughcare and Aftercare Team and Youth Justice Team. In return we offer a supportive team environment, flexible working, commitment to continuous professional development and offer regular supervision and annual appraisal. We offer a competitive salary, generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement as well as access to a number of additional employee benefits and a wide range of learning and development opportunities. The service firmly believes in the power of strength based relational Social Work and its members will hold the ability to address behaviours linked to, or because of, adult and childhood trauma and compromised child/parental relationships and capacity. Scottish Borders Council prides itself on being a great place to work where staff are trusted, valued and supported to make a positive contribution at work. We would like to hear from you if you are a team player, empathic, enabling and resilient with a 'can do’, solution-focussed approach. The selection process is expected to take place via TEAMS. Where this is a requirement for the successful candidate to work from home as part of the role you will be provided with the necessary IT equipment by the Council, however, you will be responsible for the provision of any required furniture.
